Story

On Monday morning 13 September 2010 at around 6.30am, the  Captains Climb team reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.  Extremely tired, cold but triumphant!   

It was honestly the hardest thing I have ever done.  I would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who supported me and the Stepping Stones appeal by donating. You helped spur me on when I felt like stopping, so thank you!  The climb has so far raised a staggering £300,000, which is amazing.

 

 

The team are now focusing on reaching the target of £1m for Velindre Cancer Centre’s Stepping Stones Appeal, raising awareness about lung cancer and funding research. 

 

 

You can still help by purchasing the Official Captains Climb DVD which is out now priced at just £10.  To order your DVD please visit www.velindrefundraising.com or call 029 2031 6211.  Alternatively, some of the Captains will be signing copies of the DVD's, so come along and pick up a copy...the perfect Chrismtas present or stocking filler!  

 

 

8 Dec: the Duke of Wellington, Cowbridge from 7pm with Ieuan Evans & Jonathan Humphreys

 

9 Dec: the Yard Bar & Kitchen, Cardiff from 7pm with Garin Jenkins and Bob Norster

1st Dec: The Old Arcade, Cardiff from 7pm with myself & Warren Gatland
